I just wanted to share a new set of art work. This is being shown in progress from start to finish.
This really was a challenge for be because it's not my normal color palet, or style. I was inspired by Elizabeth Allan. Link below. I wanted this piece to be my own, so I added my own ideas to it. Each canvas is 4"X 12". I used acrylics, watercolor, rusty hardware, stamps and ink.
Hope you injoy. Feed back would be appreciated.
These are the 3 canvases
I had worked out the basic design in my art journal and when the canvas didn't grab the color and
smeared and left all kinds of blotchy marks I was ready to throw the canvases out the window. LOL!
I lost the feel & I was very discouraged. Mantra, gesso is my friend, repeat, try again. I smeared gesso all over the canvas with a paper towel. Then swirled on more color with another paper towel.
I still have that inner critic telling my work is not good enough and who do I really think I am?
I keep pressing on and tell that inner critic to shove off.
vulnerability, but that's what I choose to share with you my dear readers. I hope you enjoy this
painting. Please leave me a comment and let me know you were here.
Hugs to you all.
